old virginia!

Jacob Boyd back at ames... spring time 2005? Matt Vincent chillin!
Jacob tree jump at ames
Old Great Neck Trails 1998? This was my first real spot and the beggining of my addiction for finding spots, digging, riding, building teepees and hanging out! This set of woods is now tropical smoothie, ruby tuesdays, central 511, coldstone...all sorts of non squirrel related stores. Bummer.
Jeff Nicholson at radford trails. Note how green! Im moving back there on wednesday to finish my music degree, so I'll be digging there again too. Erik from patriot bikes took over the spot and its looking legit as hell. Jeff was my ultimate trail buddy until he left for paraguay. His bike got stolen too many times though for him to keep his chin up. One day we'll make the funny comedy/documentary on these 2 dudes who build trails together but one of them dosnt even like trails or anything hes just gay and needed an excuse to hangout in the woods with a guy. Such a sketchy story line its almost scary but its perfect. ew. ugh.
Me at ames dead of winter 2004/2005? Im not into winter, and I still cant table for shit but Im not gonna quit riding until I can get them flat. serious.

Balls

Every now and then you get in a cycle when you start hanging out with the same dude on a daily basis and its awesome. It happend in austin with derek and ski, we would ride bikes and play music on the daily. insane. Since Ive been home and went to richmond its been balls! We eat chanellos pizza listen to music, ride and stay stoked. On the way home from richmond we rode 2 race tracks and a skatepark. Last night we started digging again at thrashmore, should be real fun. We also put together my old 1" holmes while watching bmx on the olympics, a pretty righteous night especially since balls has been trying to build that bike for 2 years. We took it into the street at 3 am and had fun. I mean it this time WE HAD FUN on our bikes, it wasnt through the motions stuff, we got goofy. I decided I could do a 180 so I tried it, and pulled it off first try, roll out and everything. Real lame to everyone else but, to me Im real stoked. Balls and I just kept laughing and had fun till about 4 am. Im going to try to do a 180 tonight for christians birthday present because he love street and would be amped on me doing one im sure. Im pretty bobo on a bike to be honest, but I really love the creative side of building trails and riding bikes in the woods. Being around kick ass dudes always rules too. So yeah Im having fun in VA and am leaving to go dig at thrashmore. Christian hewitts birthday tonight at POS should be nuts! Virginia is for lovers.

farewell

video

If it had rained more, there would have been way more to build and ride. I moved back to Virginia Beach for the time being, I might go back to school to finish in a year, and fix up my old trails out there. Or I might travel around till spring. But for now the zoo is just hiding out in the woods alone. It has great potential. I hope someone picks up the shovel while Im gone.
